Like the checkerboard, eh? Heheh......
In this tutorial you will learn how to make this Checker Bracelet where squares sections; made from bugle
bead and embellished with Swarovski bicone (think checkerboard? heheh..... ) are joined together with netted seed bead.
I did not list the exact number of beads you need because as far as bracelet is concerned it is very much amatter of individual sizes; since the size of wrists from one to another varies greatly and also a matter of
preference; in that whether you like to wear your bracelet snug fit or loosely. I, for example have a small
wrist and prefer wearing bracelet that fit a little snugly.
The size of the bracelet that I made in this tutorial is 6” long using 80 bicones with 5 squares link. I didn’t specifically numbered the amount of bugle beadsand seed bead you’ll need because I assume that these would have been bought in packets or shanks which I believe should be more than enough for one bracelet.
Tools & materials used:
- 4mm Swarovski crystal bicones
- 6mm bugle bead
- Size 11/12 seed bead
- Clasp of your choice (I use magnetic clasp here)
- Crimp bead
- Fishing line/Monofilament/Supplemax or equivalent
